YANAGAWA, JAPAN – Welcome to Yanagawa, located on the island of Kyushu in southern Japan. Today is an extra cold day, snowing and so instead of driving we decided to take the train to get to Yanagawa – from Fukuoka it took about an hour.
Yanagawa is a very pleasant town, located along the beautiful Japanese coast, and home to plenty of fresh seafood and something they are most famous for; unagi, or eel. When it comes to Japanese food, Yanagawa is one of the capitals of eel! But first, we took a traditional boat ride through the canal system to enjoy the peace and natural beauty of the town.

While on the boat ride, I could smell the smoky aroma of eels being grilled and it was almost unbearable, so we decided to try our first eel – and this was a recommendation from our boat captain. The eel was delicious and fresh, caramelized with a sweet soy sauce glaze, and served over rice in a wooden lacquer box. It was my first taste of Yanagawa eel… but more and better coming up!
Total price – 8,150 JPY ($63.48 USD) for 2 boxes

Next up we went to a legendary seafood restaurant, more like a seafood market with a restaurant in the back. They had a nice catch, but one of their specialties is alien fish – literally alien fish – something otherworldly which they catch right off the coast of Yanagawa. They recommended some as sashimi and some deep fried. I also tried a number of other dishes, all of which were as fresh as possible and delicious.
Total price – 8,800 JPY ($68.54 USD) for everything
Main eel restaurant: Ganso Motoyoshiya: https://goo.gl/maps/xDbBq9d63dvNt2GK8
Finally we made it to our main reservation for the main meal of the day and the most highly regarded and renowned Japanese eel restaurant in Yanagawa; Ganso Motoyoshiya. They’ve literally been serving their eel recipe since 1681. I was extremely lucky to have a chance to enter the kitchen to see just how they grill the eels to perfection, dip them into the sauce, grill again, and then place them over rice in a wooden box before steaming it altogether. This style of serving unagi / eel, which is called Unagi no Seiromushi, is unique to Yanagawa and one of the signatures of Ganso Motoyoshiya. I went all out and ordering the biggest set includes 3 types of eel. It was outstanding!
Total price – 21,700 JPY ($157.94 USD), but my set cost 8,200 JPY ($59.71 USD)
Yanagawa is a fantastic town to visit on a day trip from Fukuoka to enjoy the peace of the canals and especially the delicious Yanagawa eels, and quick alien fish sashimi!

Alien fish= Mud Skipper…you already taste the fish in one of your food journey😌
An alligator asked an electric eel, “Hey, can I touch you?”
Electric eel: Yes, but I’d have to charge you.
I like grilled eel but it’s going extinct. They keep taking all of the wild baby eels leaving nothing to grow and reproduce in the wild.
I’d not want to eat the last meal. The presentation was just so gorgeous! I miss Japan!
Very delicious and spicy stir-fried snail
did you ask a guy with a tshirt “no sashimi no life” what the best way to eat alien fish is? xD
It ain’t that peaceful man I tell you everyone will do anything for the views and camera SMH trust me all that food he eats isn’t that DAMN good!!! And you are always describing everything as Salty maybe you shouldn’t eat it if it’s salty..
How can someone eat so much and stay so thin?
No chillies this is not good for Mark 😂😂
great food vlog
yanagawa is a great little town!
The one with less of a jaw is a mudskipper actually. The other is the warasubo some goby with those alien fangs
Nice, excellent and hard work,,,,brillient✅
ウナギとても大好きです。I love the eel box meal. It is said that when you eat it, you will be energetic esp. when you got sick. It boost your system well. Imported eels from China doesn’t taste well in which some restaurants, import their eels.
Not sure if anyone told you but it is uncool to blend wasabi into soy sauce so please refrain from doing so. Just another tip from guy in Tokyo.
Monkey face eel ! That live market is awesome wow .
peeyer= Pee^yo’er (Pure)
